The only grip I have about this attraction is the parking - but other than that, this attraction was awesome! We did the first Sunday tour of the day. You have to go to the gift shop to purchase tickets. My sister presented her military ID and received 50% off both her and my tickets, which was nice.
Once we had our tickets in hand, we waited at the front gate for the tour guides to arrive. The first of the two tour guides led us in and provided us with some history about the location. She jogged our memories a little with some trivia about the movie and provided us with ideas for pictures. She told us that the majority of the house was interactive and "please touch." She also said that the guides could take pictures for you if you needed.
After the introduction, my sister and I went upstairs to see Ralphie's room. We snagged a couple of shots in the bathtub, sitting down at the toilet pretending to use the Orphan Annie decoder, and laying on the beds pretending to be Ralphie and his brother on Christmas morning. From there, we went downstairs to sit in front of the radio like Ralphie did, had the guide take our picture in front of the infamous leg lamp award, and took turns holding Ralphie's bebe gun in front of the tree. There was even a bowling ball under the tree for use as a prop. After walking through the kitchen and seeing the turkey safely in the oven and away from Bumpus' hounds, we traveled out the back to catch some shots of the barn where Ralphie stood to shoot at Black Bart.
Once we were done taking pictures at the house, we traveled across the street to their museum. There were several articles in there from the original movie and there was a cast member (the guy who delivered the crate) on site to sign autographs (for a fee) and answer questions about the movie. The museum was small but informative - NO FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY!
From there, we went up the street a little to walk around the gift shop. If you are really interested, you can purchase a bunny suit at the shop to get a picture of yourself, your spouse or your kids walking down the stairs (although the suit is a little pricy) like in the movie. There were ornaments and mugs, and just about anything else you can think of with merchandising. The shop employees were very friendly and also prepared to answer questions.
It was definitely worth the visit if you are a fan of the movie!
